Abstract

BACKGROUND: Haemoglobin A1c (Hba1c) levels and uric acid levels may be associated.

AIM: This study aimed to determine Hba1c, and uric acid levels are associated among patients with diabetes mellitus type 2 who attend a primary health care clinic in North Sumatera, Indonesia.

METHODS: We conducted a cross-sectional study among patients was conducted on 70 type 2 Diabetes Mellitus patients who attended Primary Health Care in Binjai. Patients with age > 40 years old attend a primary health care clinic in Binjai city, North Sumatera with diabetes mellitus type 2. In each subject demographics, age, sex, body mass index, blood pressure, post health history, fasting blood sugar, Hba1c and uric acid levels were checked and recorded. A student’s t-test was used to determine if there was an association between Hba1 and uric acid levels. A total of 70 were included in this study.

RESULTS: The mean age of study subjects was 58.33. The mean Hba1c level was 8.743, and standard deviation (SD) was 1.80. The mean of uric acid was 6.31, and standard deviation (SD) was 1.58. The statistical analysis using T-test found that there was no significant association between Hba1c and uric acid levels among study subjects (p > 0.05).

CONCLUSION: We found no significant association between Hba1c and uric acid levels among the study subjects.
